Cruise Ship Accidents

Cruise ship accidents are not uncommon. A recent study found that over six hundred cruise ship injuries occurred in a three-year period. While some injuries occur on land or on the docks in cruise-related accidents, most of the injuries occur onboard the ship. Because of the variety of activities and accommodations cruise ships have to offer, there are countless possible accidents that can occur onboard. Common cruise ship accidents include:

  1. Slip and fall accidents;
  2. Trip and fall accidents;
  3. Automatic door accidents;
  4. Drowning accidents; and
  5. Accidents involving boats, gangways, or other aspects of cruise ship functionality.

These accidents can cause many different types of injuries. Most common among these are:

  1. Fractures;
  2. Head injuries;
  3. Lower extremity injuries;
  4. Open wounds; and
  5. Neck and back injuries.

While many cruise ship injuries are mild and can be easily remedied by the onboard medical staff, some can be serious and require further medical attention. Injuries aboard cruise ships can require hospitalization or long-term medical care and can upend the lives of the victims. Accidents on cruise ships can also lead to the death of the victim. Lives are tragically lost on cruise ships every year. Often, an onboard death is the result of natural causes, but sometimes accidents can lead to life-threatening injuries.

Pursuing a Personal Injury Claim Against a Cruise Line

If you were injured on a cruise ship, it might be in your best interest to pursue a claim against the cruise line for compensation for your injuries. Laws surrounding cruise ships and lawsuits can be very confusing, and you might not know where to begin. You should consider the following questions if you are thinking about pursuing a lawsuit against a cruise line:

  1. Foreign Cruise ShipWas the cruise a foreign cruise? Foreign cruises are cruises where you do not depart from or return to a port in the United States. For example, if you fly to Europe to board a cruise, it is considered a foreign cruise.
  2. What is the language on the ticket? Your ticket could indicate all manner of things, from where you must file your lawsuit to how long you will have to file and how much you might be able to get in your suit.
  3. Were you injured on the ship itself, or were you injured on the dock or on land while participating in an excursion? Whether or not you can pursue an injury claim against the cruise line will depend on whether or not you were participating in an excursion endorsed by the cruise line or partaking in an independent activity.

Laws surrounding cruise ship injury lawsuits are incredibly confusing. The major cruise lines have highly experienced legal teams that will fight to avoid paying or admitting liability in an accident. If you were injured in an accident on a cruise ship, you should seek legal counsel immediately.
